I think the ability reads:

 
You may perform actions even
when you have stress tokens.
 

Using the Daredevil upgrade will result in a stress token and Boost might result in stress tokens as well. The only thing stress tokens will do to this ship is prevent red maneuvers. I don't think the A-Wing will have many red maneuvers anyway (probably the same number as a TIE fighter is my guess). The only issue is that Daredevil (and possibly boost) won't be available because it involves executing a  red maneuver.
 
That's really good.

 That is a pretty awesome ability. Pulling a red maneuver and then still being able to evade? Priceless. I'm getting more excited to play with the new stuff.

 Agreed. My preorder is in and the release can't come soon enough.

 would be funny if you put expert handling on him, and have him barrel roll every single turn and watch the pile of stress tokens just keep growing and growing and growing

He won't get stress tokens from barrel rolling. He has it on his bar.

looks like evade / boost / target lock / focus to me, or is there a more updated pic you are refering to?

So that why this set seems to come with 3 stress tokens? :-)

Looks like Tycho Celchu and Arvel Crynid are the A-Wing aces…

You are right. For some reason I thought the A-Wing would have been nimble enough to perform a barrel roll without Expert Handling. It's the TIE Interceptor that can barrel roll.

That makes his pilot ability even better.
